Secondary School Entrance Changes

From Monday 14th January our entrance on Wood Lane will be open to students only until 8:55am. Students will also leave via this entrance as usual at the end of the school day. Any students arriving after 8.55am will have to enter via the Du Cane Road entrance and register at the all-through reception, which is located in the Primary. They will then be escorted to their lessons.  

All visitors, parents and guests will arrive and leave via the Du Cane Raod entrance, at all times and also check in to the all-through reception.

The all-through reception is reached by following the pavement around to the left and entering the primary building. 

House project underway

Our ambitious plan to bring staff and students together to build a fully-functioning timber house on our White City site is no longer a dream in the pipeline - it's a reality. The School House Project is underway and things are moving quicker than expected.

Under the supervision of a skilled and knowledgeable team of professionals, students have thrown themselves into the initial stages of the challenge with ample grit and enthusiasm. Well into the process of constructing the wall panels for the house, the group are fast acquiring a toolkit of skills that will serve them well over the coming months.

Roderick James, the architect leading the project, has been impressed not only by the efficiency of the young workforce, but also by their creative input and conceptual understanding of the plans. Students have been eagerly offering insights and opinions that will have a significant bearing on the finished product.

Special mention must be made of Malachi Grant, Fahim Omarzaiy and Adam Doad, who have displayed valuable leadership qualities, contributing to sharp and productive output.

The coming months are sure to be a very exciting time at Burlington Danes Academy. An external blog covering the project will be established soon.
